Paul Hewitt is one of four partners at Withers who specialise in contentious trusts. ‘We are doing nothing but disputes about wills, disputes about trusts, and huge cross-border succession matters,’ he says. ‘In the past you shrugged your shoulders on a lot of these disputes. But socially and economically, the dynamic has changed.’ Career highlights include representing Louisa Hodkin in a judicial review of the Registrar General of Births, Deaths and Marriages’ refusal to register a Church of Scientology Chapel as a place of religious worship, and acting for Royal Society in its successful application to extend the meaning of ‘United Kingdom’ to include Jersey and the Isle of Man in a probate context.
